New Jacket and two quilts!
I finished this jacket, the pattern is from Interwave knits, winter 2006. It is called "a cardigan for Arwen". I used another yarn that the pattern asked for, I used Renaissance from Classic Elite Yarns, 100% wool. Maybe that is why it is a bit too small, and I can already tell that the sleeves will grow longer and longer by the way they are knitted. Anyway, it was fun to make.
This is a wallhanging called "Rustic charm". I made it with fabric from Moda Chocolat collection. It is a 37 1/2" square.
This is a bigger quilt, it is a 64" square, called "Pinwheel pirouette", made from Moda Madeira collection. Both this quilt tops will be machine quilted by my "quilting lady". I will keep her busy next month. I am now trying to set up a store with quilts and dolls for sale on "Etsy", hope to have some quilts set up for sale soon.
Every Christmas I make a new Santa, this is the one for this year. From next year I will start to make more traditional Norwegian "Julenisser", I have already ordered a new book. The snowman is made by a dear friend of mine years ago, he is very cute.
